karaoke on a date?

I'm hanging out this weekend with a girl that I kind of like. We are going to a bar where they have karaoke (her idea). We were friends in college and I've only seen her once or twice since we both graduated last April. Things could eventually get serious (i.e. boyfriend/girlfriend sort of thing), but I don't want to rush anything since I don't know how she feels about me (she had a boyfriend back in school and we were pretty platonic then). I'm just kind of wondering if anyone has any suggestions for solo songs or duets that might be fun to sing, but not too obvious (i.e. nothing like Tom Jones - Sexbomb or Olivia Newton John - Physical etc.)?

    Love Shack by the B52s. Despite the name, it's a campy little ditty that everyone loves.

    What are some of your favorite songs? Just to give an idea of what you want to do. Any idea what kind of music she likes?

    This one's your best bet. It's goofy as hell, but if done right, is a lot of fun for everyone in the room. And if she's into karaoke, ham it the fuck up while singing this song, and you're likely to score points.

    Anything from Grease would probably be good too, if you can stomach it.

    Just make sure you aren't a horrible singer.

    Everyone is a horrible karaoke singer. Professional musicians sound like shit on a typical karaoke set-up.

    Singing and sounding terrible is 100% worse than being shy and not singing. The girl will appreciate the effort; especially if he can laugh at himself and have a good time.

    I dabble in everything but country and rap. Mostly I like rock/alternative, though.

    Good ideas so far, thanks!

    You Sexy Thing by Hot Chocolate is the best date karaoke song ever. I've been with the same guy for three years because of it.

    Sing that song "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes.

    It's that retarded song from dirty dancing.

    she might dig that. by association.

    I just hope that you can both harmonize
